    We stopped to use the restroom facilities and got a fantastic view too. It is pretty par for the course for the smaller rest stops in this area. Pit toilets, two are available; one is handicapped accessible but is further up the drive. There are signs about paying a fee, but it made no sense. We didn't pay and saw no others doing so either. For a 5-10 minute stop there should be no fee.

    This is a great place to visit, with scenic views of the Collegiates. Not a whole lot here, unless you want to picnic or hike, but a great spot to take some quick pictures.

    The most beautiful mountain view one could ever hope to see.

    It was advertised like a regular scenic overlook from the highway. When you got there they just wanted your money and didn't have anything extra to offer. A total money trap. And not good for breastfeeding.
